I know it's late but I didn't get a chance to do a post before Halloween. I tried to do a few halloween manis. They were all fails. I decided to just use Halloween colors I used Wet n Wild Ebony Hates Chris and Sally Hansen Grass Slipper. The dots were made using acrylic paint. Hope you enjoy!

Ok...Here is one of my all time favorite manicures. I love how glittery and sparkly it was. I think this would be great for New Years. I used one coat of China Glaze Pelican Grey, then 2 coats of China Glaze Polarized. I put a layer of top coat to smooth it out and then added the dots with acrylic paint.
I included this blurry pic, so you can see how great this polish is..

I'm back....lol...I've been so busy and haven't been able to blog. Good News is I have a few posts o share in the next few days. Here is a great vampy color from Wet n Wild. It's called Under Your Spell. In love with this color. It's perfect for fall. I added some white dots because I can't just leave it alone.

I put a question mark because I am not sure if you will be able to get the look I was going for with this mani. I wanted to do a play on candy corns. I also wanted to use black nail polish. There is something so clean and sexy about black nail polish. I love wearing. I kept staring at my nails. I chose to do one accent nail with orange, white, and yellow acrylic paint. The black is Revlon Black Lingerie. I think I might try a full mani with this closer to Halloween.

You know when I love a look, I do it over and over and over again...lol. These look like a patterned skirt to me. I used Sinful Colors Smokin as the base and pink and white acrylic paint for the pattern. I used the end of an orange stick to create the lines. I think this would look great in many different colors. Enjoy!!

I went into TJ Maxx to exchange a pair of pants for my daughter. Waiting on line I saw a bunch of Essie's that were screaming out my name. They begged me to buy them. I only had enough on me for one. I picked up Smooth Sailing for only $3.99. I want to go back and get more. I am so glad that I picked this color. It is a blue shimmery color. It is amazing. Here is a swatch of it on its own.
How great is this color? I tried to get a good pic of the shimmer.
I couldn't just leave it alone. So I added some hexagonal glitter I got from the dollar store. I like this mani because it is simple.

I am trying to squeeze in some Halloween nails with my regular manicures. I like crazy nail art for halloween, but sometimes I like some things a little more subtle. I didn't mean for these to look so in season, but they did. They remind me of pumpkins. This is a great orange polish by Gap called Poppy. Love it, it's opaque and has great coverage.

I'm not sure what to call these nails. They look like a pattern to me, but not sure what pattern. Maybe you guys could help me out. Anyway, whatever they are called I LOVE THEM!! I know I say that about every manicure, but I swear I love these. I want to try them out in different color combinations. I used Sinful Color Rainstorm as a basecoat and different acrylic paints for the lines. I used a paint brush to make the lines. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do...lol..
